“Wears its influences on its sleeve, [but] never feels worn or tired” – Central Station by Ladve Tidhar

“Interestingly, Tidhar isn’t all that concerned with finding a central narrative within this world, and appears much more content to explore it. Central Station is not a novel, but rather a collection of intricately connected short stories, each of which shed some light on a different aspect of life and culture in this world he’s created” – Daniel Carpenter reviews Ladve Tidhar’s Central Station

“Her star’s likely on the up, and you heard it here first, in full Technicolor mixed-metaphor” – Blind Water Pass by Anna Metcalfe

“There’s not a lot of plot here; it’s a book that thrives on undercurrents and imagery and themes rather than action or humour, and so it’ll likely appeal to the literary types rather than those who want a well-told-tale or a rollicking adventure over implicated war stories or quiet tales of woe. But Metcalfe’s got a strong range of cultural and political reference points and a way with words, and so we think she’ll be going far…” – Valerie O’Riordan reviews Blind Water Pass by Anna Metcalfe
